Foodies on vacation: Hawaii Farmers Markets schedule

For a complete listing of markets on every island go to Hawaii Farmers Market Directory. Artisian goat cheese, local papayas, gargantuan heads of lettuce, exotic flowers, star fruit, avocados, taro, fresh coconut juice, kale, raw honey, foot long beans, eggplant, onions, grapefruit, oranges, apple bananas. . . cheap, freshly picked. Get there on time as the best vendors have been i.d.ed by resident shoppers (you'll see the lines) and inventory sells out fast. You'll be supporting ag sustainability, meeting the locals and discovering miracle cure-alls like noni juice. To your health!
